M.I.B., or more commonly, “Men In Black”, // are a team of secret agents who are hiding the fact that aliens have landed upon earth.
I’d never have thought that I, a normal high school student, would be fighting alongside these guys…
“Do you comprehend why we have come?
“Mr. Akiyama Kaito.
“Are you perhaps talking about Kiraha…? // She’s freeloading here at the moment…
“Then we have no need to explain further. // Well then. Hand over that alien over to us.
Alien, he said… // As expected, Kiraha isn’t an earthling…!
“What’s wrong, Kaito?
Sfx: Step step step
“…Don’t come… // Don’t come over, Kiraha!
Sfx: step step step
“Who are these people…!?
“Just escape, Kiraha! They’re after you!
“Is that a comedy act!?
(T/N: A deochi is a comedian who garners laughter through his appearance, costumes etc the moment he gets on stage.)
“Wha… Who’s a comedian! How rude!!
“Even I felt… // that it was slightly strange, too.
“Slightly, you said!?
“Ah… that’s right, haha… // Somehow, it adds up…
“This feeling I’ve had that something was amiss… // If Kiraha is an alien, then that explains it!
A girl who suddenly descended from the sky…
“There was a problem with the design of the generator for the wormhole passage… // Although the Law of Planetary Travel prohibits the contact of travelers with the native species on that planet…
(T/N: A wormhole is a warp in space-time. Consult Wikipedia or a physicist for more details.)
A proclamation that I couldn’t comprehend…
“Kaito! Let’s take a bath together!
The number of incidents where she acted contrary to societal etiquette…
“So you felt that something was amiss because of that?!
“Kaito… I’m sorry for not telling you…
“not an earthling…
“What’s with that frozen pose!?
“Is that a sexy angle!? Are you providing a special service by posing for an erotic shot, just like in those perverse comedies, you octopus!?
“Who… // Who are you calling an octopus!!
“Anyhow, we can’t allow the populace to get wind of the existence of this alien!
“Words are appearing in a style used for erotic events!!
“Ah… Oh, no!
“I’m sorry, Kiraha!
“Which event are you apologizing for!?
“…Doesn’t that mean…
“I’m the protagonist of a love comedy!?
“This is also the first time we’ve seen a comedy act based on circular reasoning!!
“…It’s fine, Kaito.
“I don’t mind if
“you scrutinize me, Kaito…
“Oh, my… a public display of affection, eh… // you two rascals…
ST: He’s caught up with the flow!
“Aaahhh! Come back to reality!!
“Damn you, bastards! You dared to drag my partner into that screwed-up world of yours! // Now that it’s come to this, I’ll retrieve that alien!
“Aren’t you ashamed of separating the lovers who are so deeply in love?
“J…just run, Kiraha!
“What’s wrong, Kiraha!?
“Thank you, Kaito, // for treating me as you would a female earthling… // As the
“Queen of the Andromeda Galaxy’s Alpha star, I…
“As I was saying, you guys have been zooming in on all the wrong aspects!!
“Royalty, she said!! Don’t increase the number of inexplicable setups!!
“You have healed my lonely heart…
“Don’t… don’t say that! I was lonely, too! // I’ve always been…
“…fighting alone… // This cursed power flowing within my veins… // called “the power of the Piercing Blade”…!
“Didn’t I tell you guys not to increase the number of inexplicable setups!? // Weren’t you the protagonist of an erotic comedy just a while ago!?
“Aww, shucks… the love between two lonely souls, eh…!
“Gya! He’s so touched, he’s crying!
“Ahh… it’s been such a long time since I’ve seen such a heartwarming scene…
“For someone to sway this heart of mine, a descendant of the immortal vampire clan…
“Uwah! Why do I feel like I’m being left behind?! // Let’s stop this special-setting-complete-with-individuals-with-special-powers atmosphere of yours!
“Fufu… immortal, you said? // Interesting.
“Let’s see which of us is more superior – I, who possesses the “Power of the Piercing Blade”, or you, who possesses the “Blood of Immortality”…
“It’s a showdown!
“What’s with this development!?
“Ahh…! // A stray hit is heading towards a bystander!
“Look, it’s all because you went ahead with this strange development…!
“Time… stand still!
“Here it comes…! This girl also possesses a power! // After this, another new character will also appear…!! Yahoo!! // But there’s only one page left!
“Argh! Look, this entire eight-page spread has been filled with appearance comedians! // What are you going to do about it! Take responsibility, you fool!
“Hey hey, it’s not completely my fault! I give up, haha.
“What are you doing with a reaction akin to that of the protagonist of an erotic comedy at this stage!!
“Quick! Return to normal quickly! // Get back to the original storyline!
“I get it! I get it! // Let’s do it this way!
…So anyway, // In a town filled with strange people, they understood that an alien was no big deal, and // Kiraha continued to be an annoying, cute freeloader at my place.
Oh yeah, after this incident occurred, everyone came to my place to shoot fireworks together with Kiraha… my, my.
My “Power of the Piercing Blade” was cured.
“And so they lived happily ever after!
“…It’s too sudden! // The end of the love comedy harem is just too sudden!!
“Rather, didn’t the theme for this piece become “Special Settings” instead of “Special Teams”, as it was supposed to be?
